One year my son received a fantastic gift from his Aunty Jay for his birthday. It was a box containing a book and kit for making Stupid Sock Creatures. I think the idea of using odd socks - which thanks to my kids have ridiculously multiplied - is pure brilliance. And on top of that, it appealed to my sons' crazy and creative nature. We have all had a go at making the sock creatures, it is easy and fun to do and even more fun to see what we can come up with.
